Any update on timing? I am paid up, but if this slides to the middle of July I will not be able to attend.

Is there any info on this? I get no response from PM's and I'm already paid up. I'd really like to attend, but without any info, I'm going to need to collect my funds.

Hey, sorry for the delay! I took over this and received a reply back from Brian late last week. It doesn't look like this can take place because of his schedule till October. I'll have Jason refund everyone that wants it. I'll make sure to keep on Brian about dates so we can get this settled as soon as possible!

UpgreyD, you should have your refund. Adam, Julian has your check, let him know if you want him to tear it up.

I'm in anytime during July. Did a school with Brian a year ago and it was awesome.

Hey,
I had asked the question at one of the meets if anyone was interested in a fall version of this class. I believe the answer was a huge yes, so I'll ask Brian when he is available :)

Any chances of this being put together again? Wifey would like to either take an autocross course or a road course, and we'd like to bring our own cars.

If there is enough interest! The problem we had last time was a lot of people said they were interested, but then bailed out when it actually came time to setup/pay for it. We'll bring it back up in March/April time frame since the weather (and the venue) will be better then :)

We can aim for an early spring running. Just not comfortable to do in the winter - half the people are on the course policing up cones. After the holidays I'll hit up Brian and see whats up.

count me in, even though I parted out and sold two great auto-x cars. I'd still like to see what 400 ft/lbs and an open diff can do. Just make it an open course. ;)

It would be nice to see what this Datsun can do.

Yeah, what he said. How hard would it be to have a track day at VIR or Summit?

I'm definitely in for an auto-x class next year. Just tell me when and I'll be there.

If we can come up with the $$$, it would be awesome to do a club track day.

I'd be happy with the Shenandoah.. Exactly how many people would be interested? Slicing up $6k into bite-sized pieces isn't so bad.

Of course, I'd like wifey to get time behind the wheel whether it's autox or a road course.
